Six young tourists vacationing in the Ukraine hire an "extreme" tour guide. Despite warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, where the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor once lived. Since the disaster more than 25 years ago, it's been deserted.

The tourists find themselves in a dangerous predicament after exploring the abandoned city and discovering that they're not alone.

  • 3 stars "This looked so good in the trailer, but it made no sense. For one you pretty much never really see what the people are running from half the time. Jesse McCartney's character disappears out of no where, and you don't even figure out what happens to him, for all we know he got away."
  • 3 stars "Decent suspense once you get into it;however,the zombielike people and wolves are not scary at all after watching shows like walking dead..."
  • 1 star "I went into the theater with low expectations... this movie fell below that. I'd also give it a 0 if possible."
